VFF 2024 Opening Film: Seven Veils by Atom Egoyan

February 2 @ 6:30 pm8:30 pm


Academy Award-nominated director Atom Egoyan was inspired by his own experience directing the Canadian Opera Company’s production of Salome, and collaborating once again with Seyfried whom he previously directed in Chloe (2009). Blending his signature visual style of layering mediums and screens, a device he’s employed since his earliest films, Egoyan and Seyfried never lose focus on the narrative, delivering an intense and authentic behind-the-scenes look at a complex web of modern relationships laid bare on stage and screen. – AR
